This is the latest in a series of interviews with fellow personal finance bloggers. Today’s guest is Liz from Less Debt More Wine.
Who is Liz Stapleton?
Liz: I’m a recovering attorney and freelance writer focusing on personal finance, entrepreneurship, and issues facing lawyers. Since starting my personal finance blog, Less Debt More Wine in 2014, I have paid off all of my credit card debt (over $10k), raised my credit score from 640 to 800+, and paid off one of my many student loans.
Why did you start your blog?
Liz: I started my blog in 2014 as a way to help me stay accountable while paying off my debt. I started with my credit card debt, I paid it off in 5 months. It’s taking me considerably longer to pay off the rest of my debt which stands around $250k.
Since it will take a while to pay off my debt, my blog has evolved a bit to not only help me stay accountable but also to help others with extensive (think law school) student loan debt to destroy debt without giving up having a life.
